    So - new years already in progress (still 8 hours away for me at the moment) - who's made resolutions?

    I'm gonna lose weight (50 pounds is reasonable for me).

    Save cash for a trip across the globe. (Japan, Brazil, Norway or New Zealand - just one of em, I'm not rich)

    How about ya'll?

    Edit: Scratch the IRA - that's too easy - I wanna get back into flying. So that's resolution #3.

    50 isn't a lot for some of us here, bud. Trust me.

    I'm going to read/listen the Bible in a year by listening to a podcast.

    I don't believe in 'em -- any time is the right time to make a chance in your life that you want to make.

    I totally agree.

    But if must have one, I'm going to get my license and my own car by the end of the year. *crosses fingers*

    Not much really. I cut back on exercise last year because it was final year in university and had my game to finish. But now I've pushed that back to late 2008/2009 I'm taking things a little slower this year. Going to get back hiking again, a good friend has just moved back around here so that'll be all good.

    No resolutions as such. Just to do more outside of work :)

    Loose weight
    Save for a Mac Pro or iMac
    Do brain training for the DS twice a day! Having the brain of a 80 year old isn't the greatest thing to be told.

    I'm going to make a renewed effort to go to the Gym. I used to go 5 times per week but that has slipped to just 3 times per week over the past few months.

    Unfortunately, everybody else is going to be doing this (for a few weeks anyway) so the Gym will be super-busy.

    I could definitely be in better shape. I'm blessed with a good metabolism, but I know that down the line it won't always be the case. Might as well develop some good exercise habits beforehand.

    I also need to cut down on the swearing.

    Why not?

    I'm going to court and marry the woman every other woman I've met is terrified of--terrified of her sweeping me off my feet. Hey, it's bound to happen, right? ;)

    Of course, I don't even know if I like her, or vice-versa, but, why not?
